Excuse me I'm sorry to bother you but don't I know you
There's just something about you
Haven't we met before
We've been in love forever
When we got to the top of the hill we saw Rome burning
I just let you walk away
I've never forgiven myself
I saw you on the steps in Paris
You were with someone else
Couldn't you see that should have been me
I just walked on by
Then we met in '42, but we were on different sides
I hid you under my bed but they took you away
I lost you in a London smog as you crossed the lane
And I'd never know where you're gonna be next
But I know that you'll surprise me
Come with me, I'll find some rope
I'll tie us together
I've been waiting for you so long
I don't want to lose you again
Don't want to walk into the crowd again
And don't walk away again
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you again
There's just something about you
Have we been in love forever
9/11 in New York, I took your photograph
I still have your smiling face in a heart-shaped frame
Snowed in at Wheeler Street
Just two old flames
Keeping the fire going
We looked so good together
Can't we just stay there forever
We were so happy
I'd live that day over and over
But the world won't stop turning
When we got to the top of the hill we saw Rome burning
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you again
Don't walk away again
Don't leave me lost again
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you again
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you again
Oh no not again. No, no, not again
